polls had the president 74 electoral votes ahead of governor romney. when you looked at how it's likely to turn out in terms of which way states were leaning they used the polls to calculate at that point that the president had 265 votes, just about locked up, compared to just 191 for governor romney. you need 270 to win. fast forward to today, and we see the predicted 74-vote gap has shrunk to a mere 10 votes, and with the momentum now going to the former governor of massachusetts it is hard to imagine how there could be more on the line for these two men tomorrow night at the next presidential debate. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of "fox news live." i know you don't say i told you so. but you came on this broadcast in the face of all these polls for weeks and pundits i should add who were saying, it's over, it's over, barack obama has this race sewn, don't bother watching for the next six weeks or eight weeks, oh, where is he going. >> i'm here, coming back. >> very unceremonious of your camera machine as i'm giving you a moment of glory. >> we can't

obama lost. governor mitt romney won. it was a pummeling. poll numbers have changed. president obama has got to come back. that has to make you a little nervous if you're governor romney who you will be up against tomorrow night? >> absolutely. in fact he was supposed to come to new york this afternoon for a big kickoff after donor retreat happening here in new york. he decided not to do that in order to extend his debate prep today. they will do a morning session today and do a large afternoon session to get him ready which is measure how serious he is taking this. he knows the president is coming at him. the obama campaign made no bones telling people they will try to pick apart his record, rhetoric and proproposals and policies. romney knows. that because this is interactive with the audience the ability to to voters will be measured more intensely tomorrow night than past dedates. -- debates. this time mr. obama and mr. romney will be directly in front of answering questions to voters so they have to make a question. that has not been one of mr. romney's strong suits. the president i

democrats take a look at the poll numbers and ramp up their claim mr. romney is a liar. >> are you saying governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yes, absolutely. >> people point out what a liar mitt romney was last night. if he was talking, if he was speak he was lying. >> i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up and that's what we got in mitt romney. >> many people are situation they saw is a governor romney they had known all along and what is the problem in the past is they haven't seen that person and he final emerged during the debate. >> you mean he lied through his teeth in the republican primaries when he said he was going to cut taxes for the american people. he's the etch-a-sketch guy. we always have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. if you lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about of course you can look good. megyn: doug schoen is a former adviser for president clinton an

all polls, that's the first time that's happened since mitt romney secured the nomination. you can see the course of the last year with the blue line for president obama and the red line for mitt romney. and you can bet that this means new pressure for the vice president going into tonight. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. when i prepared for this event today, chris, the daytime show now and the prime time coverage later, the experts told me in the materials i read that the vice presidential debates never really move the election that much, the most it's moved is three points. and i said to myself, three points is a lot in an election like this one. >> three points is a lot when you have a one-point gap, megyn. first, let me say, you are in a beautiful place in america, you are in a wonderful spot, and it's going to be a great fisticuffs tonight, so i'm very jealous. you're doing something awesome. megyn: thanks, chris. >> three point would be a big deal in this race where seldom has anybody been up -- the president's

, mitt romney edged him in the fox poll on favorability. they've been attacking, the president and the vice president have been doing mostly attacking mostly on character, mostly personal attacks on tear opponents for five or six months. i would submit that has taken a heavy toll on the favorability and even the likability of the democratic ticket. and it looks like they're gonna have to keep it up to keep their base satisfied. but i don't know that that that's going to please swing voters. megyn: yeah. that underscores the problems going into a night like tonight. after a night like last week. chris stirewalt, thank you, sir. >> you bet. megyn: conservative and liberal bloggers are doing battle over a question of bias ahead of tonight's debate. the moderator is martha raddatz, she was chosen by the commission on presidential debates to do this. she has touched off a bit of a debate in the last few days. trace gallagher is tracking that piece of the story. >> martha raddatz is much more apt to be covering war than politics, she stopped covering the white house back in 2008. she is feer

ago, republicans were quick to own all the pew data and the fact that romney was leading in the polls. the fact that it's not trending towards them now seems odd. megyn: the questions were raised because they chaingsd it so close teen election day, tucker. >> the cell phone change is not the only change that was made. the key change is in the sample, who gets the calls. they increased the size of the non-white sample in their sample set. megyn: that's one of the things axlerod wanted them to do. >> that's the key here. i have no knowledge that gallup is doing anything wrong or doing it because of pressure the federal government or the obama campaign. i'm merely noting this is a big deal. it has had a measurable change on the poll outcome on the band wagon effect is real. if people look at the polls and think somebody is going to win, if it's clear that person is leading, that person tends to get more support because he is leading. this is not a small thing. >> i would say we are talking about fractions and 1%, 2%. these aren't big massive jumps. truly the methodologies are important b

popping up in more and more polls in governor romney's favor. in the latest nbc news polling, chris, they're showing that seniors are, that 83% of them say that they're enthusiastic about voting. that's up six points from 2008. that's a group that tends to lean republican. but when you look at latinos and young people, enthusiasm among young people down 20 points, enthusiasm among latinos, down 8 points from 2008. those are important voting blocs for the president. >> you've got it, and the deal is this, mitt romney's going to win seniors, 60% of seniors, something like that. he's going to win massively, and tear all going to go vote because they do, because they're good citizens, and they read, and they go vote. that's the deal. what barack obama did in 2008 was expanded the universe of potential democratic voters. he brought in a lot of first-time voters. the footprint of minority voters, the footprint of young voters was larger inside the electorate than usual. the problem with doing that is he promised them a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff in order to do that. and, of course, the
